BE DILIGENT: Lord of Death & Disease: Interruptible
FOCAL PASSAGE: Mark 5:25-34… 25 And a woman was there who had been subject to bleeding for twelve years. 26 She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse. 27 When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 28 because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” 29 Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering. 30 At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?” 31 “You see the people crowding against you,” his disciples answered, “and yet you can ask, ‘Who touched me?’ ” 32 But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. 33 Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. 34 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”
When we learn to be interruptible, three things will be true . . .
OBSTACLES CAN BE EXPECTED
HEAD ‘EM UP AND MOVE ‘EM OUT
OBSTACLES IN OUR WAY. . .
IT’S IMPORTANT FOLLOW THE DETOUR SIGNS
UNIDENTIFIED ROADS TO TRAVEL
COMPARE THE ROADS
CONSTRUCTON CREWS AHEAD
WE WILL ARRIVE AT THE REAL DESTINATION
Why would Jesus humiliate this woman who for the past 12 years had been the scorn of the village?
He is Lord of healing for sure. But more than this, He wanted her to receive the fullness of His Lordship in her life. Mark 5:34 34 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”
Having been saved she could now truly go in peace.
All because Jesus was willing to have His plans interrupted. What about you?
LIVE IT OUT
> Jesus is available to all!
> Interruptions many times are your path to salvation.
